The mission of St. Francis Life Teen is to lead teens closer to Christ. Life Teen is an opportunity for high school students to deepen their friendship with Jesus Christ in a unique environment that blends catechetical learning with interactive and social activities. The aim is to further one’s understanding of Jesus as a personal God who truly loves us unconditionally, thus leading to conversion and the sharing of that encounter with others.
High School Students, join us every Sunday for 6 pm Mass followed by an awesome Life Night. Dinner starts at 7 pm followed by Life Night at 7:30 pm. Fall Semester Life Nights will run every Sunday night through December 15th for Life Nights on a variety of topics. Contact Cari with any questions or for more information.

Life Teen Parent Life
Parent Life is a site dedicated to educating parents on teen culture so that they can be empowered to fearlessly and faithfully guide their teenagers through the modern world.
Our current Parent Life pick is the Teen Culture Update: September 2019. Have you heard of Greta Thunberg? This teen is making waves, advocating for environmental change, and chances are high that your teen has watched one of her speeches. Learn more about her, new music, social media, and video games that were introduced to teen culture in 2019 by clicking the button below.
At the heart of a youth ministry program is not workbooks, but people. It is through these people that the love of Christ is embodied and a young person comes to know of God’s love. At St. Francis of Assisi, these are our Core members. Adult men and women giving the greatest gift of all, God. If you want to learn how you can get involved with Core Team at St. Francis, contact Cari.
